CHAT Stall At Wick Fun Day Raises Great Amount For Fighting Fund

26th November 2016

CHAT's treasurer has sent out a message about today's Funday with regard to the stalls funds -
"Well done to everyone involved in the fundraising stall in the Market Square today, the total raised was £672.87 which is really great. The total is for everything - raffle, donations, etc it includes the £40 that Bill received as donations."

CHAT chairman Bill Fernie paid tribute to a great and dedicated group who are pulling out all the stops in their efforts to oppose NHS Highland plans to downgrade maternity services at Caithness General and he said, Once again people in Caithness have shown their generosity and that they are prepared to help ensure that funds are not a problem in taking the campaign forward. I thank everyone who bought a cake or piece of tablet, booked hoodie or took part in the raffle. To the ladies who were there over the day - well done and great job considering you all have to juggle families at the same time.

Thanks to everyone who has so far volunteered to join the bus trip to Inverness on Tuesday.

Funds have been coming in from around the county but CHAT has not got great amounts as already expenses are mounting up - such as hire of Assembly Rooms for Friday night - £700 and bus hire £600 for next Tuesday. Currently funds are The total funds held by CHAT are now £1,963.25. The two expenses mentioned are still to be paid but we have paid for range of other things already. CHAT fund raiser sub group are great bunch of mothers and are very able and if anyone would like to contribute send any amount any of the group to be passed to our treasurer.

Our predecessor group North Action Group had money coming in throughout a Two year campaign and ended up donating a large amount to Friends of Caithness General so we are sure any necessary expenses can be met.

Thanks to everyone for today's efforts.
